Make Your Friends Jealous With This Creamy Mac And Cheese Casserole!


This recipe has been a great hit over at Spend With Pennies! Let’s have a look at what our friends over there had to say about this recipe:


“I made this last night and loved it! I am always on the lookout for a good mac and cheese recipe and this one fit the bill…definitely a keeper. I used the soup and fyi, since the pasta came in a 16oz package I used all 16oz instead of just 12oz and there was plenty of sauce. And I do love a lot of cheesy sauce. Yummy!”




12 oz Barilla dry macaroni

¼ cup Land O Lakes butter

¼ cup Gold Medal flour

1½ cups Borden milk

1 cup Borden light cream

½ teaspoon McCormick dry mustard powder

1 teaspoon McCormick onion powder

1 can Kraft condensed cream of cheddar soup (optional)

4 cups Kraft sharp cheddar, divided

½ cup fresh Parmesan cheese




Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking pan.

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Run under cold water and drain.

Melt butter in a saucepan, over medium heat. Whisk in flour and let cook 2 minutes while stirring. Slowly whisk in cream, milk, mustard powder and onion powder. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese & 3 cups cheddar cheese until melted. Add soup if using.

Toss cheese sauce & macaroni together. Pour into the baking pan and top with remaining cheese.

Bake 18-24 minutes or until bubbly. Do not over cook. Cool 10-15 minutes before serving.





Quick Tip – For some crunch, put some panko bread crumbs prior to baking.
